The sensors on level 3 remove the lasers blocking the doorway
2 handed weapons (shotgun and AK) only fire forward
Remove assigned shots by clicking on an already-placed node
Broken glass shards can interfere with your shots, so wait a while after shooting out glass to take aim again

Author Commentary:

BoMToons: This was intended for Madness Day 2010, but was slightly delayed. I had this gameplay idea while watching some Madness cartoons. It's gone through a lot of revisions based on lots of player feedback (thanks Coaly and Jacksmack!). I hope you give it a chance! There are tons of other gameplay features we wish we had time to add like smarter AI, more stealth rewards, smarter reloading constraints, more balanced guns, the ability to watch all your replays in a row, etc...maybe for a sequel? As always, it's a pleasure to work with Luis, his take on my ugly level mock-ups brought a richness and fun to the story that I never would have included. P.S. This was coded "Somewhere in Nevada" where I live!

Luis: This is a strategy/puzzle game, kinda like chess. Enjoy!

Same as the guy below me.

I think this is a great idea, with a good bit of promise. However I think that it could have been better executed. After all, if the entire purpose of the game is to plan out our moves before hand, wouldn't we need some inkling of what was going to happen in advance? Maybe a shaded clone of the enemy in motion or in the boss's case an exclamation point to warn us where it would appear next? I just need more information than "There is an enemy on this stage" in order to formulate any kind of plan.

Its a Great idea

Go further with this....this can end up being a bad ass game hands down...but its lacking....If you went with a "Slow-mo" or "Kill time" kinda play Vs the run the entire room then who knows where your bullets go....I would say hands down this would be a 10 Easy....Awesome art and great play....I hope you put out more work!

a few points for the idea

I realy like the idea, but you never know the movement pattern of the enemys before your first attempt of a level. I stopped playing at the first boss, because of this. There isn't any way to predict when the boss is at a specific place except for playing the level over and over again and memorize the times or hope for some lucky shots.
